“…what we consider knowledge is more of a general social agreement on a somewhat consistent comprehension of the things before us. For example, we appreciate that the color green can be perceived differently by various people, but we organize our language based on a general understanding of the color green without worrying about the particular experience of green that any individual may have.”

What green do you consider your core green? For me it’s not a tube green but a mix of cadmium yellow with whatever blue I’ve been using (and I’m more likely to have used blue before I get to green when I’m painting with acrylics).
And one of my favourite colour questions: is turquoise a green or is it a blue? The in-house art critic says green, I say blue; we’ve agreed to disagree.
